LighthouseNOW was on board M/V Ocearch to see the male and female lions of the sea fitted with tracking equipment and subject to sampling courtesy of marine science experts along for the multi-week expedition, which concludes this week.

This is Ocearch's second campaign to Nova Scotia in as many years as they work to learn more about the white shark and raise public awareness about the species.
